A letter from Chairman Johnston

Dear Friends:
It is a busy time for Democrats here in Massachusetts .
The Democratic Caucuses are over and we will begin to hold forums around the state in March. State Party officials will be holding forums to solicit your input to create the 2007 Action Agenda that will be presented at the State Convention on May 19, 2007 at the University of Massachusetts Amherst . You can log on to our website at www.massdems.org for more information and to locate a forum near you. Forums will be held in each of the state's 10 Congressional districts. We hope you will join us as we ‘March into Democratic Action'.
It is not too late to apply for add-on status for the State Convention. If you are a youth, disabled, or a minority, you are eligible to apply for add-on status. More details and an application are available (here).
College students are encouraged to apply to the Massachusetts Democratic Party for the John F. Kennedy Scholars Program and the John Joseph Moakley Democratic Intern Program . The Kennedy Scholarship is a $1,500 scholarship for the fall semester awarded to one male and one female applicant. The Moakley Internship is a ten-week internship and a $2,500 grant. Details and an application are available (here).
I am also pleased to announce the Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Annual Dinner will be held on April 30, 2007 at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel in downtown Boston . More details will be coming in future newsletters.
Thank you for your continued activism.
Philip W. JohnstonChairman
